David's Biography :
Mr. Hardin has been involved with real estate since 1986 when he and his father formed Yesteryear Renovations, a company dedicated to the craftsmanship of years gone by. Their focus was to buy older properties but before reselling them, they tastefully remodeled the homes to today's standards while retaining the classic charm of yesteryear. In essence, David was flipping homes long before it was popular and several of the homes were featured in newspapers and on HGTV's program "Before & After". In 2002 Mr. Hardin obtained his real estate license with the idea of selling his own homes but that quickly evolved to helping sellers throughout Knoxville and the surrounding counties. David advocates for his clients and provides HD photography plus a property video for all his sellers and also enjoys working with flippers and the most discriminating buyers. David can be reached at 865-591-0283.

“Best agent in Knoxville. We had. Extra large home on the lake in the upper price bracket and very hard to find buyers for. He worked with us and offered ideas to help sell. He then helped us find a new home on short notice when our house sold and worked in every way possible to help us get moved. He is the best in the area,he was not our first agent but was our last and got the house sold. I would consider him not just an agent but a friend.”
- Mr. & Mrs. Whaley
"David Hardin is an outstanding Realtor! He worked tirelessly and patiently with me for over three years as I looked for a home that suited me. He's very knowledgable about the greater Knoxville area and surrounding countryside. He's an expert at the process of searching for and buying a home. I've not been impressed with 99% of the Realtors I've worked with over 40 years, but David is a notable exception. If you're looking for a home in his area, David is the Realtor for you."
- Joseph Kintz
“Prior to listing my house I interviewed 6 agents/agencies and David Hardin and Rebecca Wampler showed themselves to be heads above the rest. Prior to the interview they had thoroughly done their homework, and presented themselves in a very positive professional manner, thus making the choice easy for me. From that day forward until closing I had no regrets in the choice I made. During the listing I had many showings and I always got timely information related to the showings about the timing, whether they were running late, or needed to reschedule and always got honest feedback on each showing. David was also the photographer and videographer and did and an excellent job on both tasks. I was given the opportunity to review and comment and/ or make changes on the photos and video. David was also instrumental in clearing up some problems with my dock permit with the TVA, and with some site survey work. These actions contributed greatly to keeping the process moving forward in a timely manner. There were also several “side” agreements that needed to be addressed, and again were handled in a very professional manner. Thanks to the efforts of David and his partner and their team back in the office closing happened with no problems, and I walked away as a very satisfied customer. I have on many occasions recommend David and his partner to friends and neighbors and will continue to do so.”

“David Hardin went out of his way to help us market and sell our house on Norris Lake. We had been on the market for 5 years when we listed with Dave in 2013, and he sold our house in 2014. He worked hard to get us a reasonable price on our house.
- Ken West
“We have had the pleasure of working with David Hardin several times from 2003 to 2009 for our real estate needs whether it be for buying, selling, or just a question about an aspect of real estate. He sold 2 homes for us and each sold within a couple of months after listing. He showed us numerous homes when we were searching for our new residence and was patient with us throughout the process. He has a keen eye for construction and architecture and knows what to look for when assessing problems and quality. His suggestions for preparing our homes for sale and for staging were right on target. David is a pleasant trustworthy man of integrity and you can rely on his knowledge and professional handling of all details. He takes a personal interest in his clients and is helpful and accessible. He returns calls—he answers questions—he makes time for you. He knows the real estate market and what is fair. We highly recommend David Hardin for your real estate needs.”

“David Hardin is an exceptional Realtor. In addition to being very professional and having a complete knowledge of the local area, David is willing to put the time and effort in to offer a full service to both a seller and a potential buyer. I have been in both of those positions, and my associations with Mr. Hardin were very much a pleasure. In the event I have future real estate needs in his geographical area, I will do my best to make him a part of them.”

I’m very pleased with her facilitating of the deal on my behalf with her knowledge and experience in real estate. Her recommendations were helpful every step of the way. I would highly recommend her to anyone.”

“David did a great job photographing our house and marketing it. He has many years of experience and it shows. He is very knowledgeable and gave us great advice. He knows the market and knows how to price your house to get the best result for you. I highly recommend him as a great realtor. Iwould say he is the best realtor we have ever dealt with.”
- Jennifer Fowler
“Rebecca Wampler worked with my husband and myself across many months and miles to help us find just what we were looking for when we made the move to east TN. from Ill. at the time of our retirement. She was unselfish with her time and took it so well when I refused house after house because of my pickyness. She never wavered in staying on task and being committed to finding us just what we wanted. She has a vast knowledge of the entire area, the market conditions, as well as a knowledge of construction, zoning, etc. because of her work for years with her father who was a builder. I couldn’t imagine anyone who would work harder with her clients to find them the perfect home in their price range or to find the perfect buyer when selling an existing home. Rebecca is a true gem!”
- Waunita Keen
“Rebecca Wampler is wonderful!! She provided us with great insight to our areas of interest. Moreover, she was always well prepared with listing information, comparable homes, and other listings. Rebecca clearly had our best interests in mind and wanted us to find the perfect house. It took us a while to find our perfect house, but with Rebecca’s help and guidance, we did indeed find it. We recommend Rebecca to everyone we know who is buying or selling.”
- Tim Lederhause
“Rebecca Wampler and her associate, David Hardin sold our home in Newport TN. The eventual buyer was very difficult to deal with. Rebecca dealt with each challenge effectively. She went way beyond what she should have to finalize the sale. My wife and I both have sold a few homes over the years, and this was by far the best experience we have had with a realtor. Our blessings to Rebecca Wampler.”
- Barry and Joan Breland
“We worked with Rebecca Wampler long distance (Illinois to Tennessee), for over a year, as we were trying to find just the right lake front property for us. She was knowledgeable about all three lakes, Norris, Cherokee, and Douglas, and the developments on those lakes that would be suitable for our needs. We would travel to TN and meet with her, and we also communicated a great deal by email. She was knowledgeable in the TVA process on getting a dock permit, and did extra legwork in meeting with people from the TVA, and communicating those findings to us. She was patient as we tried to decide on a property, and once we chose one, helped arrange the closing to meet our travel needs. She was instrumental in our finding the right property, as well as a great builder. Our goal is/was to relocate to Bean Station at the end of this year, but have had a couple set backs. We would recommend Rebecca to anyone searching for a home or property, whether local or long distance as we are.”
- Connie Morton

“Over the last 10 years of doing business with Rebecca Wampler, she has continually impressed me with her willingness to do what it takes to provide excellent customer service and satisfaction. Through the peaks and valleys of the real estate market, Rebecca’s knowledge of the Knoxville market has saved me some heartache and brought things to my attention that I would not have know, otherwise. I would strongly recommend Rebecca as Realtor.”
- Todd Zellars
“Rebecca Wampler is the quintessential Realtor for Knoxville and a wide surrounding area. Her expertise and patience are number one. We highly recommend Rebecca and her staff for your real estate needs. A#1 for sure!!!! We had worked with Rebecca from our home/business in Kona, Hawaii for a few years in anticipation of our retirement. She would keep us updated on the eastern Tennessee housing market and answered all of our dumb questions about all things “Tennessee” in anticipation of our conversion from the Aloha state. When we finally sold our home in Kona, we stayed in a long term rental hotel (Candlewood Suites are great) for almost three months while we looked for our final choice in area homes. We are very picky but Rebecca would respond to our every request until a new listing hit Zillow and we jumped right on it. Saw it, made an offer and was accepted all within a week. Rebecca and her staff handled the background things with ease and we had a quick and easy closing. We are now proud homeowners in Tellico Village and quite thankful for all of Rebecca’s efforts.”
- Gus and Cynthia Brocksen
